Martin DC-X2E Macassar Ebony Dreadnought Acoustic Electric in Natural
Solid Spruce on Ebony-print Back and Sides
The latest from Martin's X Series is a value-packed stage performer chock full of no-nonsense player advantages. The DC-X2EME starts with a hand-rubbed solid Sitka spruce top — one of Martin's most revered acoustic instrument tops — joined to back and sides of climate-proof HPL ("high-pressure laminate") in a gorgeous Macassar ebony print. Underneath, Scalloped X bracing with 1/4" Tone Bars maximizes bass response throughout the robust D-14 cutaway dreadnought body. And discrete electronics from Fishman allow you to strap on and plug in anywhere you perform out, all without detracting from the raw beauty of your instrument. Other hallmarks of the DC-X2EME include a slim, comfort-enhancing Performing Artist neck profile with High Performance Taper and a tone-enhancing compensated TUSQ saddle and corian nut. Don't let the entry price or nebulous woods deter you — the Martin DC-X2EME is another fine contender from the X Series, and one that acoustic players at Sweetwater are proud to take on our fly dates and acoustic outings.
Sustainable building materials
Martin is all about sustainability. That's why they've incorporated eco-friendly materials throughout the Martin X Series DC-X2EME. The warm and resonant HPL back and sides feature a sumptuous printed Macassar ebony pattern that recalls some of the most iconic Golden Age dreadnoughts. This material not only sounds great acoustically, but is highly resistant to rain and heat, humidity and dryness. This makes it the perfect choice for taking along to festivals and fly dates where you wouldn't dare whip out your classic D-45. The bridge, neck, and fingerboard on the DC-X2EME are made from select hardwoods and come outfitted with premium features, like a TUSQ saddle and factory-Plek'd frets, for great tone and playability where it counts.
